scenario for very competitive baseball. no question about that. again, enjoying what is some great weather right now. current conditions at bwi. we've got temperatures in the mid to upper 70s across the area. 78 at bwi. humidity is comfortably low at 47%. temperatures comfortable to low 80s. the dew points in the mid-40s. this is gorgeous. we're going to stay clear tonight, clear first thing when you wake up, maybe some fog. as we start off the day and low valleys a little bit of fog. otherwise, not bad at all. the trend shows this. that front we've been talking about begins to march into the high country west of us. by 6:00 maybe some showers from hagerstown west. then we go to tomorrow evening. looks like the showers will fall apart. nothing more than a stray shower into early saturday. look at this, nice and clear and brilliant blue skies will be back saturday and sunday. it will be breezy through the
day on saturday. so it is clear for now but watching that front to the west. behind this not particularly cold air but certainly a shot that will drop us back into the 70s as opposed to the low to mid-80s. we've got nadine. so nadine a potent system that is on the edge of hurricane status, deep convex in the open atlantic water. nadine we see taking a reconsider offing path. that's going to get it safely out to sea but the winds pushing up close to 70 miles an hour, so an interesting storm in the tropics although it's no threat to u.s. interests. tonight 58, clear. patchy fog tomorrow 83. maybe a stray shower into tomorrow evening. otherwise, partly cloudy and not quite as cool butt will cool

you think. if your car had big dents in it, you'd know there's something wrong with it but that's in the what you're going to find on the market e there will be little tiny telltale signs. you have to check the carfax report, have a mechanic look at it. the people from carfax put out these three mini vans, all used, 2012 but one is a rebuilt wreck. all afternoon we had people looking at them to see which is which. they should be looking for specific things. what things should they be looking for? >> we all do the once over, kick the tires on the dealers lot. lock down the car. make sure the lines are good, clean. look at the gas in the car, hood, trunk. make sure they're sell met
trical eve. look for overspray. look for bolts and nuts that have been replaced that don't match the wear and tear on the other car. look for the vin number, especially the hood and the trunk. the vin numbers are there. if they don't show up, it means it may have been replaced. >> reporter: do people realize those telltale signs are there or do they need a trained eye. >> need a traned eye. little signs of wear and tear, so you need to consult experts like carfax and mechanics to help you peel back the layers of the onion. >> reporter: a carfax report for the most part will tell you if the car has been involved in a wreck, but also check with a meek -- mechanic. >> a one-two punch. it's the one we often skip, the
one that's just as important. the mechanic has that trained eye and tells you what's been repaired and wrecked. >> reporter: some people were going under the car, looking under the hood, checking the paint. a few people were cheating. i'm not calling you out, but a couple were cheating using the carfax mobile app. which one is the rebuilt wreck and what are the telltale signs. >> it is the far one. it's on the carfax report. this vehicle, the town and country on the end had extensive rear end damage, the bumper, lift gate were replaced. you want to make sure this was repaired properly. there's no reason you can't buy the car, but just know it. >> reporter: we've had people looking around all day looking at the little grooves in the car, looking for spots. show us real quick highlights that people may not have noticed
that you would notice if you had a carfax report. >> one of the big things that's hard to tell is the paint on the bummer doesn't quite match the paint on the body. it's a different shade. it's really hard to match perfectly the shade of paint. so you want to look at different shades of paint. look for signs that the car is newer. get underneath the vehicle. cars today are unibodies. the frame is important to prostect you in an accident. if the frame is off, it will not protect you. >> reporter: chris from carfax tricking us today but for a purpose to teach us a lesson about buying a used car and doing your lesson. we're back to you. >> well, it's back not battleground states for the presidential race. president obama in colorado and mitt romney in virginia. tory dunnan, given what's going
on in libya, yemen, foreign policy has got to be a hot button. >> reporter: for a second day in a row, the debate over foreign policy takes center page. at a campaign event in virginia, mitt romney continued to criticize the president. >> as we watch the world today, sometimes we're at the mercy of the events. >> reporter: meanwhile, president obama spoke in an event in colorado and stuck to a presidential tone. >> what we see on our television there's still threats to the world and we have to remain vigilant. >> reporter: kelly, the vice-president is also busy on the campaign trail. earlier he made a stop in wisconsin, which has recently become another tossup state and found out that president obama heads there next week for a fund-raiser. >> a little bit out from the
conventions. what are we seeing from the poling numbers. >> reporter: the president was in colorado. this is a brand-new poll from american research griew. obama has a slide lead over romney, 49%, 47%. ohio, the president at 48%, romney 47%. that's a dead heat. michigan the president has a 10 percentage point lead. michigan is not a battleground state but it's interesting to look at because it's romney's home state and his father was once the governor there. >> you mentioned wisconsin and now back in the nation's capital, what can you tell bus paul ryan. >> reporter: earlier today he came back to d.c. he is expected to make an appearance on the house floor that would keep the government
